Reasons to Seek Treatment for a Knocked-Out Tooth
- A knocked-out tooth can cause a number of problems, including the misalignment of the teeth and jaw and difficulties with eating and speaking. By seeking treatment at Darch Dental Centre, we can help in ensuring that your mouth maintains its overall function.
- If a tooth is knocked out and not replaced, the jawbone gradually shrinks, resulting in a loss of facial support. Dentists at Darch Dental Centre use modern technology to replace knocked-out teeth and help you retain your facial structure.
- Leaving a knocked-out tooth untreated can lead to infection and damage to neighbouring teeth. Our experienced dental team at Darch Dental Centre will assess the damage and take steps to prevent further damage to adjacent teeth.

Comfortable Sedation Options
Immediately seek treatment if your tooth has been knocked out. The tooth will likely survive if re-implanted within 30 to 60 minutes in its socket. A knocked-out tooth’s chance of survival decreases after 60 minutes away from the mouth.
Pick up the tooth by its crown instead of its roots. Clean it carefully with water. Using your fingers, gently push the tooth back into the socket and gently bite down on it to hold it in place. If you can’t put it back in its socket, the tooth must be kept moist in your mouth, next to your cheek, under your tongue, or in an emergency dental preservation kit. You can also store it in milk, but regular tap water isn’t recommended because root surface cells can’t withstand long-term contact with water.

If you cannot place it back into the socket, keep it moist in your mouth, next to your cheek, under your tongue, or in an emergency dental preservation kit. You can also soak it in milk; tap water should not be used because the root surface cells cannot withstand prolonged moisture contact.
An infection is the most significant risk when your tooth is knocked out. Bacteria can infect the exposed tooth socket, causing inflammation. This infection could eventually harm the re-implanted tooth. To protect yourself from infection, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics. Among the other risks are:
- Loss of significant amount of blood
- Damage to the nerves
- Damage to the tooth roots
